Waiting for this to change to:

"Well we missed the Al Qaeda dude and killed a wedding party of 20 next door instead."

I guess it's a pretty exciting day for #2.

Enjoy it for the next few weeks/months.

So does the drone get the medal?

Ooo, wee! Old-ass Fark subby being so edgy and cool. At least you're not being a Nazi about it. Good on you for that.

If upward mobility is one of your top goals, you could do worse than start a career at Al-Qaida.

Robot assassins have a limited range.  We're working on that.

When you kill the leader of Al-Qaida, Al-Qaida gets a new leader.  It's leaders all the way down!

Thank you Joe Biden for single-handedly defeating al-Qaida. (Just using the comms stylings of the last four years).

For your next trick, please defeat Y'all-Qaida.

No, because it's pilot is a civilian.  That's so our government can kill infants, children, and entire families because they are next to #1 al queda, ISIS, or whatever other bogeyman they claim is a serious threat to red state rural Americans.
Since Trump traded the Kurdish land in Syria to Edrogan of Turkey in exchange for a real estate development deal I don't see any reason for us to be there.  Maybe give Assad a Presidential freedom medal and give him US citizenship?

In this market, al Qaida's HR Department must have a hell of a time filling vacancies.

They're competing with ISIS, so I think not.

The U.S. military said it killed a senior al-Qaida leader in an airstrike Friday in northwest Syria.

I can't help but feel that Subby could have at least troubled himself to read the first farking sentence of the article.

Hey boss, I know I'm just a low.level grunt here al qaida but if I don't get a raise, I might have to identify you as a top level operative here at Al qaida.  Kind of a nice title boss, doncha think?
15 percent?  Twenty would be nicer, supreme leader of global operations, boss.  Twenty it is.

To be fair, they are more upwardly mobile than the average US citizen in the last 40 years.

Mission Accomplished!

Well, there it is everyone! All the wars are over. All the bad guys gone. We can go back to the way things were in 2000 and just enjoy being Americans in America, right? We protected our values and our way of life. We fought the good fight. We did our duty, and now we can enjoy the fruits of that.

I have been waiting for this news, and today, here it is! No more security checks, or intrusions. And there is more democracy in the world than ever. It was all worth it, and now it is all over. We won!

YAY!
